Nice paintings - and I can see you are experimenting different styles.
In my younger years I painted a bit myself, and will probably take it up again now that I retired.
 
I like them - especially the last half of them - and maybe the first, are very good. They are not far from the works of a danish painter from the Cobra Group, J.V. Martin.
Unfortunately, his works was not highly appreciated until after his death - but you have a better chance Smile

Thanks, Knights and Northman.  Embarrassed

I love reading biographies about artists, musicians, poets, etc.   Reality can be so much more dramatic than any fiction.  I recommend Lust for Life (novel), a 1934 biographical novel about Vincent Van Gogh, written by Irving Stone to everyone who are interested art.  There is also a movie made after the book with same title.  Young Kirk Douglas plays van Gogh and Anthony Quinn plays Gauguin.  Here is one of my favorite scene....

 
 
A few years back I was in a bad car accident and couldn't do much for a couple of month accept sit around at home and get pilled out.  I was reading Mark Rothko: A Biography by James EB Breslin - 1993 around that time.  So one day I got inspired enough to do what my parents tease me as 'something your five year old nephew can do'.Big%20smile  That was when I found this site too actually.   I am fully recovered now without any serious complications.   Looking back, that accident has changed how I see the life itself, and the endless struggle to find right time, space and company and activity to enjoy and grow same time. 
 
I have developed some taste for Post Impressionism, American Abstract Expressionism, and Russian Suprematism and Minimalism.  Now that I'm a mod for Modern Culture, I think I'm gonna start some threads on those in the future, hopefully in a month or so.  I know we do have some historical art/architecture threads in AE, but I don't think there are too many Modern or 20th century Art, if any.   
I believe I am a reflection, like the moon on water. When you see me, and I try to be a good man, you see yourself.

Well, it doesn't say I've edited, and it looks about same to me.  But that page did take longer to open since I've loaded up all those colors, least to my computer.  So if you don't see the one you are were looking at before, it might just be not loading up properly.  I've seen that happening in this site once in while if the page contains large amount or oversized photos, maps, charts and such.   Or is that just me, Northman?  I should have loaded up less with more space in between too.

Good eye, Cahaya.  There is just something that's not right about that last one.  Northman might have picked it out already.  Believe me or not the last two paintings actually same painting.  Last one is just inverted colors of the one right before and also zoomed out more and also 90 degrees rotated and different cropping (almost two opposite halves).

This one actually has a title, being one of my favorite, 'The Birth of Trigonometry'.  I was just playing off of the title of one of Nietzsche's book, 'The Birth of Tragedy'.
 
You can read it here
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
......

Where would we be able to derive this miraculous division of the self, this collapse of the Apollonian climax, if not from Dionysian magic, which, while it apparently excites the Apollonian feelings to their highest point, nevertheless can still force this exuberance of Apollonian art into its service?  The tragic myth can only be understood as a symbolic picture of Dionysian wisdom by means of Apollonian art.  It leads the world of appearances to its limits, where it denies itself and once again seeks to fly back into the womb of the true and single reality, at which point it seems, with Isolde, to sing its metaphysical swan song.

In the surging torrents
of seas of my desires,
in resounding tones
of fragrant waves,
in the blowing All
of the world’s breath—
to drown, to sink down,
to lose consciousness—
the highest joy.*

Cahaya-You would have to be the best looking member of AE that I've seen (Or is that Ponce fellow? Tongue)

KKoM-Those are certainly some crazy paintings.


...I might take another photo and put it up tomorrow

I felt it to be a more than appropriate time to upload a couple of photos of myself Smile

The first is of my sisters and I at the Pre's to my Year 12 Formal. The second is my family.
